Sony Xperia L1 makes its debut in Europe, priced to sell for €199

The Xperia L1 was launched in the United States about a month ago, but Europeans weren't given a chance to purchase the mid-range Android smartphone until this week.

Although we knew the Xperia L1 might not be available in too many regions until June, we thought that at least a couple of European countries would get it much earlier.

In any case, if you've been waiting to pick up Sony's new Xperia L1, you'll be pleased to know the smartphone is now available in many European countries for around €199. However, if you live in the UK, you'll have to shell out £169 for the Xperia phone.

The Xperia L1 is not something to brag about, but it will probably do its job nicely. The smartphone is powered by a 1.45GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

Also, it sports a large 5.5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution, a 13-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, as well as a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera.

The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and packs a non-removable 2,620 mAh battery inside. Dual-SIM support is available for the Xperia L1 Dual model only.

What?! Do you think that's all? Did you check? 1. Has 16GB of internal storage. 2. Has the same speaker location as the old xperia Z family. 3. Bigger bezzels even for a 5.5 inch phone. 4. Less than 3,000mah battery life. And propably wouldn't have Quick charge tech. 5. €199 for a crappy internal hardware smartphone? British might choose the XZ premium instead of this one cause it lacks a lot in terms of performance and hardware. Another fail for sony production 6. Doesn't have a fingerprint sensor in it. 7. Has 2GB of ram instead of a bigger 4GB of ram Sony is becoming a bad company that releases crappy phones. Even their XZ premium didn't differentiate from the old Xperia line. Still retains that big bezzels and still uses IPS display.
